Picture of The Dressing

Chop up half of the poblano pepper. Save the other half for later.

Crush and peel the garlic.

Add the poblano pepper, cumin, paprika garlic and olive oil to the blender. Blend. Note, it will probably not be 100% smooth, but you won't notice once it's on the salad.

Squeeze the juice of one lime into the dressing. Blend again.

Set dressing aside.

Step 3: Shred
